if you are interested, here some pictures from the eclipse Oct. 3, taken in Madrid. The images from 10:53 to 11:09 are takten with an EXT90 with an 40mm superview Ocular using a Canon S2IS. On the other image the shadows forming rings are nice to see.

I had my un-modified Uni-Brain web cam put in the 26mm eyepiece of my ETX-90 and took some pictures of the solar eclipse as seen from southern Sweden. I have posted timelapse movie of the first half of the ecplise here, Clouds came during the second half and typically left just as the ecplise ended

Here's a couple of eclipse-related shots taken today from our residence here in Nairobi - feel free to post them on the site if you think they would be of interest. When we set up the ETX-125 out in the driveway I put on the solar filter and made sure to the point the right-angle viewfinder off to the side. Only after locating the sun did I realize that not only could we look at the eclipse through the eyepiece, but the viewfinder also projected a perfect real-time image on the wall next to the scope... very handy for all the folks who had come over for a look! One image shows the telescope setup - you can make out the image projected against the wall. Other image is a closeup of the projection, taken a few minutes before maximum eclipse here, which occurred at 11:22 UT.

Here is a collage of the eclipse from two photos. The eerie red color of the background was the results of shooting a digital image through a pair of solar glasses. The eclipse was through my ETX90.

Here are three pictures from the Solar Eclipse on April 7th 2005, taken from my back yard in Harlingen Texas. We had a forty percent coverage.
All photos taken from my ETX 125 using a Canon Digital Rebel with a scopetronic Digapt All were color corrected, using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 and reduced in size I shoot in RAW format for the actual originals. I have included one original( put into jpeg format) for comparison.
Heavy cloud cover came in during shooting, part of the reason for Solar 3 to look hazy. Solar one was the first shot I took that day and out of 60 plus photos it was the best.
Great site, truly it has a life of its own. A true testament to its founder.
